Paint It Black

 

Hasbro has announced a new series of figures, targeted at collectors, coming out later this year. The press release reads as thus:

Star Wars fans,

Yesterday, Hasbro’s new line of collector-targeted Star Wars figures, Star Wars Black, was announced on USAToday.com, which will include both traditional 3.75-inch action figures and a brand-new scale, 6-inch figures. Hasbro is excited to now share with you its official photography for the first 6-inch Star Wars Black figure, X-Wing Pilot Luke Skywalker. STAR WARS ® BLACK SERIES 6-INCH ACTION FIGURES (Approximate retail price: $19.99; Ages: 4 & up; Available: Fall 2013)

In 2013, Hasbro takes collectible STAR WARS action figures to the next level with the introduction of the BLACK SERIES action figure line! For the first time ever, Hasbro is introducing a 6-inch scale of the greatest characters from the STAR WARS universe. This exceptional collection of figures features incredibly accurate design and a high levelof articulation. Each sold separately.

There will be 8 Star Wars Black Series 6-inch action figures available in 2013, with the first wave—Luke, R2-D2, Darth Maul and a Sandtrooper—hitting in August.

       In recent times, I haven’t been collecting the figures as much as I’d like, but with the advent of these new 6″ figures, It may be time to start making some space on my shelves. MTFBWY.
